    Season 1

    Closest to TOS

    most dramatic

    best at exploring human condition

    Good characterisaztions and story telling, even if some of the stories themselves were so-so

    no techno babble

    best music of series

    Q was not a joke

    Picard was not perfect

    each character was different and had unique skills that added to the shows

    I maybe in the minority here, but I actually enjoyed TNG's Season 1 from the get-go way back in 1987, in particular:

    1.) The character of William T. Riker and his similarities to James T. Kirk.

    2.) The show's emphasis on space exploration rather than the anamoly of the week stories that was all too frequent later on.

    3.) No technobabble, except for a very brief scene with Wesley Crusher in "The Naked Now."

    4.) Badass Ferengi with the whip, eventhough they were kind of gross and annoying as the main baddies.

    5.) A dangerous and sinister Q.

    6.) Space was an unknown, mysterious, and dangerous place.

    7.) Like TOS, emphasis on action-adventure and morality tales.

    I guess I'm in the minority too.

    Season five.

    It had a lot of great episodes like Conundrum, Darmok, Ensign Ro, The Inner Light and many others.

    It's a very hard choice since every season had good and bad episodes.
    During the first seasons the characters only just started to evolve, while the in last seasons the writers sometimes seemed to run out of ideas.
    I voted for season #3 because there the series already had overcome the teething problems and didn't suffer from old age yet ;)

    That's a tough one, but I went with season 6.
